Forum: web Subject: Is Archive now defunct?

It has now been twenty-one months since the Archive has been updated (at least for my busy site). Is the Archive now defunct? Is there a "live" alternative?

Thank you.

Eliz.

The Internet Archive Wayback Machine may not be defunct but it is not useful for 2006 or 2007 website history. Searches are available from 1996 through 2005. Wikipedia cites a December 12, 2005 lawsuit.

Is there another site available?

Sorry for the delay in responding to this post. We are working on some background changes to the Wayback Machine and the Archive in general. The updates have been put on hold for the Wayback Machine until these are done. We are hoping to have the updates starting next month or so, but that is not a firm timeline. I'm sorry for the delay. We are not defunct, and the Wayback Machine is still being worked on, but these changes are important to do now. Please be patient with us while we work these out. Also,you are welcome to email us with more questions.

Hi apparantly google will shortly be releasing google Arhive in a few months so we can forget about the Web archive, esp since they have stopped updating - maybe google has collaborated with the way back machine?
No firm release dates yet.

Thank you for your question. No, we have not received any offers of collaboration from anyone for our Wayback Machine. We have been moving servers to a new data center, which is why we have not updated in a while. We will start that process in the next month or so. I will watch for Google's Archive with interest. Thank you for the tip.

Google Domains Foreshadow an Archive Search?

Will Google be launching their own version of the Archive.org Wayback Machine? Some recent domain name purchases have ZDNet’s Garett Rogers following his gut and predicting that such a service (perhaps even a paid for professional service?) may be right around the corner.

I can appreciate the Internet Archive's response that they are working on improvements to thier services. And I know it is frustrating when you can't find something you want.

However, I don't think it is appropriate to solicit other archive services just because you are unhappy about the temperary pause in updates. Google is Google, and I respect their offerings. But I also have respect for the original Wayback Machine and its developers. I think they have done a good job for so long.

So basically, have some respect - especially on their own bulletin forum. You did join as a user after all...

"The updates have been put on hold for the Wayback Machine until these are done. We are hoping to have the updates starting next month or so, but that is not a firm timeline. "

I noticed the last update for some sites I've checked is back on April 2006. When the updates begin again will there be a gap in the data? Or are is the data sitting on the hard drives waiting to be added to the archive? There's a certain site that I'd really like to see a snapshot in the Oct 2006- Nov 2006 timeframe, but I haven't been able to find anything so far. Thanks.

I was just wondering that myself. Our site was last archived in December, 2004.
This forum doesn't seem to be working too well either!!!

I noticed that in:

http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.shlomifish.org/

(Which is my site)

And in:

http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.zak.co.il/

(Which is a friend's site).

And in:

http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.joelonsoftware.com/

None of which were updated since early 2005.

Can this be fixed?

Regards,
